ACT SCORING PATTERN
The ACT provides four answer choices to questions in the English, Reading, and Science tests but five answer choices to questions in the Math test. The ACT has a unique feature in which the odd-numbered questions have answer choices labeled A through D or E, whereas the even-numbered questions have answer choice labeled F through J or K with the exclusion of I.
Each correct answer on the ACT gets you a raw point, and there is no penalty for wrong answers. A scale score ranging from 1-36 is computed for each test on the basis of the raw score secured in that test. The ACT also provides a STEM score and seven different sub-scores.
ACT ENGLISH TEST
The English test consists of five passages with 15 questions per passage. Most of the questions ask you to select the answer that is most appropriate in grammar and style or the one that is most consistent with the tone of the passage.
Six elements of effective writing are tested in the English test, that fall under two categories.

While the questions are arranged in a ‘general order of difficulty-easy, medium, and hardly you may see a few hard questions in the first 20 questions conversely, you may also find a few easy question among the last 20 question’.
ACT READING TEST
Four passages belonging to for genres prose fiction, social sciences, humanities and natural sciences comprise the Reading test. A Passage always follows this order and each passage is followed by 10 questions. This gives the test taker the advantage of working on those passages belonging to the genres he is most comfortable with first, and save the harder ones at the end.

The ACT science test does not test any ‘Science’ based knowledge; rather it is a test of reading and Reasoning based on science-related passages. In this test you will see about 2-3 Charts and Graphs passages, about 2-3 science experiment passages, and 1 or 2 fighting scientists passages-the number of questions ranged from 5 to 7.

The essay task asks for your views on an issue in the context of the three given perspectives presented on the issue.
